I want to reproduce something like the attached. The composer’s original time signature notation often has long bars and complex rhythms which need to be split up for easier reading.
I want to copy the method done in another program, using normal sized time signatures in the staves and the composer’s original time signatures as system text above the top staff of the score.
I’m trying to make this work using system text in Dorico, using the glyphs from
https://www.smufl.org/version/latest/range/timeSignatures/. Clearly the “Control character for numerator.denominator digit”
glyphs are meant to be used somehow, and this document http://www.smufl.org/files/smufl-0.7.pdf (pages 40-41) gives some clues, but I can’t find the “right” way to put all the pieces together, either to make a time signature with single digits (e.g 9/4) or with a two-digit numerator centered over the denominator (e.g. 10/4).
Note: the other notation program obviously “cheated” by using a different font for the fake time signatures, but Dorico and Smufl should be able to do better than that!
